On Wednesday July 6, 2016 at 6:00 PM the message "Do Your Deeds in Secret" was given by Minister Christine Lee at Gratia Community Church in Sioux Falls, SD. The message was taken from Matthew 6:1-8.
Jesus lifts the lid off the inner workings of the heart going deep into the motives of the works done for the Lord in this passage. It is important that believers are not just doing the right works for the Lord, but that they are doing them for the right reason.
Christine shared there are three acts addressed here. They are charity, prayer and fasting. In each case Jesus gave examples of how counterfeit people of God were doing these things just to be seen of men and get men's praise. They didn't really care about God or His kingdom. People were created to receive and give love. God's love and love for God should always be the motive for everything the believer does.
